Mum wins £100k in People’s Postcode Lottery after forgetting a task on her to-do list


Lucky twist of fate

A Devon mum, Tracy Arnott, has won £100k in the People's Postcode Lottery after forgetting to change her ticket to her new address. Tracy, a former member of the Royal Navy, and her husband Mark Roddis, were among the lucky nine neighbours to win the Millionaire Street six-figure prize. Tracy had put their house on the market in January and had planned to change the ticket to their new address but had not done so due to a delayed house move. The couple received an email and phone call just 48 hours after discussing the ironic possibility of winning the lottery after their move.

A dream come true

Tracy now wants to take her 15-year-old daughter, Erin, to a Formula 1 race in Monza, Italy. Erin's dream is to work for a Formula 1 team, and Tracy hopes that this experience will inspire her daughter. Tracy intends to keep the winning ticket and take out a new one with their new postcode. The prize money will enable them to fulfill their dreams and create lasting memories.

Other lucky winners

Tracy's win comes after a Welsh man, Barry White, won the jackpot and his partner revealed his £333,333 cheque on a WhatsApp video call. Another winner, Jackie Caule, described her win as "life-changing" and plans to use the money for a dream holiday, possibly a cruise. The People's Postcode Lottery continues to make dreams come true for lucky participants.

Remember to gamble responsibly

The People's Postcode Lottery reminds people to gamble responsibly. It is important to establish time and monetary limits before playing and only gamble with money that can be afforded to lose. It is also crucial not to chase losses and to avoid gambling when feeling upset, angry, or depressed. For assistance with a gambling problem, individuals can contact the National Gambling Helpline or visit the Gamstop website to be excluded from UK-regulated gambling websites.
